Biomedical engineering (BME) is one of the fastest growing engineering disciplines — with very promising job prospects. Focused on medical sciences and interventions, biomedical engineers create new, game-changing technologies that save lives and improve quality of life. As a biomedical engineer, you could be working to create an advanced military helmet prototype, predict kidney problems early enough to save lives, or develop synthetic substitutes for bone grafts. 

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally renowned faculty experts and benefit from our High Impact Practices of Student Success: team-based learning, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community service.
